The 2 week wait = A giveaway

There comes times during this journey of infertility we have to wait.  A treatment doesn't go as planned and we need to start from square one or at a different pace.  So since I have to wait 2 weeks, why not have a giveaway which will expire on the 16th, the start of my next treatment!!

My lovely friend Adrienne has shared with me a life filled with accessories.  I can not remember a day where I have seen her and she doesn't have a cute accessory.  I recently did a photo shoot with her and she rocked out a gorgeous headband by Mila Rose Designs.  The owner, Melissa makes handmade hair accessories, and you can find her shop on Etsy filled with an amazing spring collection!!

                                                            Want to ROCK it out?

Too late! Sorry sweets I just snagged this one.  OK I am a fibber, Not to worry, there is always more where that came from, You can purchase one now on the etsy shop.

With the help of Mila Rose Designs I have been able to create my first blog giveaway.  Did I mention that she is a local Illinois girl too!!!  "The Mae" is a great spring addition to our love of fluffs! A olive green stretch band features a white and gray striped chiffon fluff. Will go great with any outfit, casual or dressy, and is perfect for adding a little fun to any look.

  1. How feminine. Yes...that is Miss Hammy striking a pose...so Vogue. She does have a thing for those cute hair accessories and can wear it so well. Love the bridge, nice setting.

  2. Hi Kait,
    Funny that I was
    drawn to visit instead
    of turning the computer
    off, as I'm exhausted after
    a long day. We went through
    infertility, too, many years
    ago. Today was our daughter's
    16th birthday!! And, she has
    a 12 year old brother. So,
    hang in there and keep the faith,
    even when the going seems tough.
    I love your attitude and what
    grace and kindness to have a
    giveaway for this "waiting time!"
    Of course, I would love to win
    this for my daughter, who totally
    rocks a headband these days!
    xx Suzanne

  3. I follow your blog publicly with google friend connect - thanks for the lovely giveaway!

  4. I don't have my own blog, or I would post, but for one thing I really want in life that I don't have yet would be my bachelor's degree - I'm working toward it and still have a couple years! It's important for me to have it because education has always been really important to me and this has been a goal of mine since I was a little girl.
    Thanks again for the giveaway :)

  5. I'm def following you Kait! And so cool you get to do a giveaway!

  6. Also, one thing I want in life is a steady job in my career field that I love. My dad just lost his job and my parents are straining to help us out, and I'd love to be able to help them for once instead of the other way around.

  7. Hi Kait!!! You seem to be finding peace during this troubling time -- remember you are loved and have friends who are always thinking about you =)
    Those hair accessories are DARLING!!

  8. PS: Love that pic of Adrienne!! the scene - her outfit - great shot girl!

  9. BAHAHAHAHAHA I better be getting this headband lol.
    No but seriously I'm so glad I get to work with you everyday and I'm happy we got so close. It hurts to see you go through all the stuff you do but know that I'm always here for you.

    Back to the headband... I WANT IT! LOL

  12. Hey Kait! I'm following you on Google. I am really hopeful for you and Joe! I love reading your updates...and the headband is beautiful!

    so nice to meet you. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog and following along. I am following you as well. I wish you all the luck in the world and will keep you in my thoughts...
    Good luck and God Bless you and your husband!!!

  15. So I never told you the one thing that I want in life.. I want to be happy and to not turn out like my mother. It's my biggest fear that someday I will be just like her and everytime someone comments about her like her I am it upsets me. I don't mind being the good parts of her but I fear that one day I will be the bad too.

  16. And blow a kiss to the .... DOG!!


  18. Wow I don't know whats going on with me right now lol
